Sanjay Bansal, Chairman of the Board and Managing Director, Business Octane, said, "We were experiencing growing demand from clients where they were looking to deploy only immersive telepresence suites or where they wanted such suites at a few sites where the usage would be only restricted to video meetings. To serve this customer segment which is primarily driven by choice and usage pattern or affordability, we have launched our new TXi/TX variant."

"We are very excited about this launch as it gives a wider and more innovative choice to our potential customer base.
